Work starts on new school

A traditional ground- breaking ceremony has been held to celebrate the start of construction on Stoneham Park Primary Academy.


The new 315-place primary academy for children aged 4-11 will be situated on the North Stoneham Park housing development site in Eastleigh, which will have 1,100 new homes.


The school is due to open its doors to the first cohort of 30 reception students in September 2020.

The Hampshire County Council school is the second to be sponsored by the University of Winchester Academy Trust, following Barton Farm Academy in Winchester, which is due to open at the same time.


Professor Joy Carter CBE, DL, Vice-Chancellor of the university, and chairwoman of the trust, turned the first soil. She was joined by Councillor Patricia Stallard, Executive Lead Member for Children’s Services and Young People, and Councillor Roz Chadd, Executive Member for Education and Skills, from Hampshire County Council, as well as Cliff Kinch, Area Director for construction company Morgan Sindall.
